don't exactly promote pamphlet comics heavily on this site, since
I'm one of those snooty graphic-novel-or-trade-paperback-only-please
bastards (despite me producing a comic in serialized pamphlet
issues, of course. You see how I'm a total sell out?) Well, despite
this, I still do pick up some regular comics because of the quality
of work, and I know that if I don't support them, they may never
find their way to the collected trade format. One of the books
I pick up regularly is DEMO
by Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan. In issue 9, they printed my pin-up
fan art doodle
I did for them a while back. It feels nice to have some of my
scribbles in an issue of a book I've regularly enjoyed. Thanks
guys, if you're reading this.
book I like is one called Street
Angel by Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca. It's printed through
Slave Labor Graphics,
and you can view some sample pages here.
My friend Alfred recommended the first issue to me, and after
reading through it, I was thoroughly charmed. It's a neat little
story about a super agent that happens to be a punk teenage girl
that likes to skate. Or perhaps it's the other way around? In
any case, I enjoy the stories, I dig the drawings, I like it.
I think the new issue will be on the stands soon, and I recommend
picking it up.
here's another review
of Daisy Kutter, over at Comic Book Resources...
it was also my Mom's birthday a few weeks before I started these
journal sketches, I hadn't done one for her. She sent me an email
with a frown on it, and I felt like a heel. So here's another
one, just for her, that has my brother and me in it as well. It's
pretty awesome to have a Mom that listens to Bjork and Radiohead.
In fact, people think she's much cooler than me, and they're absolutely
love you Mom! :D
